Customer Reviews

We were unable to complete our abseil due to high winds in Cape Town and the Cable Car not operating. However, I have to say the service I was given in CPT and since I returned to the UK is exemplary. Leo kept us informed the whole time as to whether we would abseil or not right up to the last morning when we were leaving. We will be back and we will abseil! I only have words of praise for Leo and the company. Thank you. - Elizabeth Winter


It was awesome! I'm only sorry I didn't book a second abseil. I was lucky because the weather was so nice after a pretty awful day the day before, it was a really crystal-clear day, as you'll see from the photos, so the views are awesome. I thought you guys were all super professional and I felt completely safe. Kudos also to your team who liaised with me around the weather issues the day before and rebooked me in for the following day when it turned out the abseil was a no go the first day. I was really impressed by how professional they were and that they kept me constantly updated and were available to me whenever i had a query. I think it's a little bit on the expensive side so I hope you do discounts for seniors and kids etc, but if I ever make it back to Cape Town again, another abseil will be top of my list. I didn't request the official photo you posted on Facebook because it turned out a little blurry - and you can see from my pictures that I was lucky enough to have a friend with me who took loads! My only complaint? It's not high enough! Andrea :) - Andrea Sieber


I was given the Abseil by my son who had done it before on a trip to SA. No ways was I not going to do it even when the man in front of me decided at the last minute he was not going to descend. I just loved it. Perfect day and the views while hanging below the cliff were exhilarating. - Keith Rodel


Great once in a lifetime experience, great staff, would highly recommend doing if you’re of the thrill seeking kind! Thanks again - Barry O’Sullivan


Great experience. The staff were really professional. They worked to make sure we felt comfortable and safe and had a few laughs too :) - Ori Dek
